Mrs. Heather Branscome
Welcome to 7th Grade!
My name is Heather Branscome. This is my 18th year of teaching and my 5th year at Tyro Middle School. I am so proud to be a DRAGON! I received my bachelor's degree in elementary education (K-6) from Wingate University, my master's degree in reading instruction (K-12) from the University of Phoenix and my AIG licensure through High Point University.
My personal teaching goal is to prepare my students to be productive, confident, successful citizens upon graduation. I believe establishing a positive relationship with students and their families is the foundation of success in the classroom. If you ever have a question or concern, please ask! I am available via email, phone call (after school or during planning) and prearranged conferences during planning time. I strive to expose students to rigorous and creative activities that challenge their thinking while also showing them the relevancy to their life and the real world applications of what we are learning.
I truly believe greatness can be found all around us and within us. As I say to the students, don't be afraid to be great! I look forward to a wonderful year together!
